    TheBostonBean's Note:

    Simple. A good snack or breakfast dish. Serve with a dash of salt or cane or maple syrup. I had these as a child during my summers in Alabama.

      This is an OLD recipe...I have the same one in a cookbook from 1947.

      Well, I've never had anything like this before, but it sounded like a cross between cornbread and pancakes, and since I love both, I thought it sounded great. I did use yellow cornmeal, so that might have made a difference. I found the batter got very thick and crumbly as it waited it's turn to get to the frying pan, and I also needed a lot more butter than 2 tsps. I'm guessing that this was one of those recipes that was wonderful back in the day when we weren't afraid to immerse foods in bacon fat.

      I really liked this recipe. These are just like my grandma used to make! I served "Easy and Tasty BBQ Crockpot Chicken" Easy and Tasty Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches in the Crockpot over these. Definately a keeper for me.
